In the first half of Sunday’s show, I went through the plethora of news that came out during the week on Zika virus, with a few audio clips to boot. Clearly, the news on this public health crisis keeps coming–Zika-microcephaly link, new research and the political wrangling that has now become the story of the once little known virus.

In the second half, I have a great discussion with writer and author, Bob Arnebeck concerning the history of yellow fever in the US in the late 18th century into the 19th century. If you have an interest in US and /or medical history, you’ll want to hear this interview.
